Waiting for a call from El Caro?


Actian VectorWise

When we announced Actian VectorWise at the UK IUA, earlier this month, we did a live demonstration running a query against Actian VectorWise in the Amazon Cloud.  To give a point of comparison we ran the identical query against a  market leading Enterprise DBMS.    We masked the competitor’s identity, to save them embarassment, but unfortunately that company’s name slipped from Roger’s lips during the demo so when you watch the video of the demo on YouTube be prepared for a very loud beep, which we used to save their blushes. 

Interesting fact: “El Caro” in Spanish means “Expensive”.
